I think her financial goals aren't going as planned or why would she seek advice from a show? A group of experts that are not affiliated need to give her some guidance. None of them (Attorney, CPA and the financial planner) should have any vested interest with each other in order to give Marie unbiased opinions.

She needs a good team that is willing to put her and her family first instead of attempting to line their own pockets.

Based on your comments you've never watched this show and yet you're quickly passing judgment without salient facts. Iyanla doesn't do financial counseling. Everyone knows that, so if Marie wanted financial help, she'd have been better off seeking out Suze Orman instead.

Iyanla's whole spiel is about relationships and self awareness. Removing toxic people from your life and encouraging strength and resilience in oneself. Based on Marie's relationship with Hot Sauce and the incident with the pastor, one can see why she'd agree to be on THIS show. You're acting as if she's being taken advantage of. This isn't Jerry Springer.

      "Fix my life"?

      Should be called "Can't fix stupid" instead.

        You are correct on one thing, I have never heard or watched the show. My comments were strictly based on what the OP mentioned and no, not everyone other than you is aware that the host doesn't do financial counseling. You must have a lot of free time on your hands to be able to attain in depth knowledge of hosts and shows that most have never heard of.

        Not a fan of Oprah or anything she is associated with which is why my views were not PC correct for people like yourself. I simply had an OPINION that she was taking the wrong route to solve her issues and no, I don't watch Jerry Springer either.

              I don't know drenick's reason but I myself do not like Oprah either. I actually did like her for a long time but a few years ago during a trip to Europe, Oprah played the race card by fabricating a story that a shop discriminated against her solely because she was black. The truth came out several weeks later after the shop owner herself debunked the entire story with facts supported by security surveillance.

              I lost all respect for her after that incident.

                I watched "Fix My Life" this evening, Sat. 9/10/16, and Marie Holmes was not on this particular episode [A Four Part Premier of "The Angry Black Woman"], unless she is going by the name Jaimeka.  But, I compared Jaimeka's picture to the picture of Marie Holmes.  They look similar, but I don't think Jaimeka/Marie are the same person, b/c their facial features are slightly different [nose & mouth] [Biographical Info differs also].

                Perhaps the real Marie Holmes will be on a future episode of "Fix My Life".

                  Oprah wanted and has her own network for cable/satellite viewers.  I don't like that she comes on mainstream to hype her shows.

                      I Agree! I apologize for any inconvenience this mix up caused you. Neither did I see Marie on the show. 

                       I hope Marie Holmes will stay out of the news and spotlight. Then we will forget her.

                        Maybe she got smart and decided to seek professional counseling privately instead of revealing her problems to a TV audience who could very well use the input to prey on her and her children.

                            Not sure where this gossip site got their info from but it's incorrect. Marie Holmes did not spend more than $20 million to bail her boyfriend out of jail. She used a bail bondsman and the total cost was 10% so she actually spent less than $2 million. Her home by the way is far from "palatial". I remember seeing a picture of it perhaps on LP and it was a nice, modest brand new home that cost around $300k.

                            Don't these websites just love to glorify the issues?

                              If you had read the linked article you would have seen that they got the info from a press release issued by the Discovery Channel.  Go nitpick them. No one is impressed.
